  • Comfy Sippers

    This week I have picked out a couple of sippers to enjoy. These are unashamedly big, bold beers with abv’s to match so probably best enjoyed slowly. Beers to sip over a long summer evening.

  • Easter Beer Sale

    This is the final week of our Irish Craft Beer Sale which must end Easter Monday. With that in mind I have picked out a selection of beers to try this Easter.

    If you are planning on having a traditional roast lamb you will need a beer with a rich malt character like St Mels Brown Ale. The steady carbonation and dry hopped citrus notes of this beer also help cut through the fattiness of ...
